The 702 law does not authorize surveillance within the US or surveillance of US citizens abroad. It authorizes surveillance of non-US persons and entities overseas.

If the target communicates with a citizen overseas or a US entity (citizen or non-citizen inside the US), the law requires a procedure be followed. The law has passed several 4th Amendment challenges.

For example, if my friend in Riyadh gives me a call and my friend is on the surveiled list, then our conversation can be recorded and the spies can get authority (I believe it's a separate approval) to uncover who I am and can get a warrant based on that intercept to open an investigation on me.

Or, if I access the overseas website of al-Qaida's magazine, Inspire, frequently I believe my internet activity could be detected under 401, an FBI investigation opened, and a warrant sought to monitor my internet activity and phone calls.

I'd give you a link to Inspire, but I'm paranoid.

Puget Ute icon NEW: Great read. I believe the FISA law is needed, but also wish they would have required a more stringent warrant before using it in the USA on U.S. citizens. (nm)

pangloss icon NEW: Did you read how the idiot-in-chief tweeted against extending 702 because he saw it on Fox and Friends? And favored extending after his national security team went on full twit alert to tell him what he believes?
